  • 6 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tablespoon bottled lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Combine blueberries and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Cook until blueberries become soft and start to release their juices, about 10 minutes.

  • Stir in the cinnamon.
  • Continue to simmer until the juices begin to thicken, approximately five minutes. 
  • Remove filling from the heat. Pie filling will continue to thicken as it cools.
